AAPT2 Daemon startup failed

this is my build.gradle
// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

buildscript {
repositories {
google()
jcenter()

}
dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.4.2'
    
    // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
    // in the individual module build.gradle files
}

}

allprojects {
repositories {
google()
jcenter()

}

}

task clean(type: Delete) {
delete rootProject.buildDir
}

this is my logs:

I have faced the same issue. Have you resolved it???

Any solution??.. i get this error also and i already do little bit of search about it, most of the solution that available suggesting to migrate to androidX but unfortunately it’s not working for me.

I am facing to the similar problem. Every forum suggest to migrate to androidX. but if we migrate then also exists the same problem.

Please degrade gradle to 3.3.2, I had degrade to 3.3.2 then its working. But it is not the right solution.

Hi there, i already solve my problem by downgrade the firebase. My problem occur because of the firebase library.

//The firebase the one that has problem
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-core:17.0.1’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-database:18.0.0’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:17.3.4’
implementation ‘com.firebaseui:firebase-ui-database:1.2.0’

//I have downgrade it to this version
implementation ‘com.firebaseui:firebase-ui-database:1.2.0’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:17.3.4’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:16.0.5’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-database:16.0.4’
implementation ‘com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:16.0.4’

I’m not sure either this one can help you guys or not. I’m still new in programming world.

Hello,
I found the solution in this thread: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50279792/could-not-find-com-android-tools-buildaapt23-2-0

Simply add the google dependency on allprojects section fixed it for me
